What kind of scope do you have in mind? Quality of glass has alot to do with this...

For brightness the 8-32 gives you a 5mm exit pupil versus 4mm for the 10x, all other things being equal..............
Accuracy starts below and behind the scopeWink. Though the variable cranked up does help on small targets at long range.

i usually use a battery powered device with a bulb for light, scopes dont work worth a damn for a light

thats what I'm leaning towards..I have read where the bushnell 3200 is recomended for bar 50 cal....so it should hold up to a 22-250...right?
